Housewarming gift! I saw this gorgeous tray at Pier 1 and knew it would be a great gift for the occasion, but knew it needed a little something extra. I settled on a few sets of candle sticks that were close to the color scheme I knew was going to be used.

I knew the tray was too large and awkward to wrap, so I sorted through my ribbon to decorate the tray and candles. (As a side tip, a great way to store your ribbon is in old fashioned straw holders. They are clear so you can see exactly what you have. It makes projects like this much simpler than if you had to dig through a mountain of jumbled ribbon.) To keep the candles in place, I just used a smidge of double stick tape.
Finally, I put a large bow on the tray by looping it through the handles. Happy new house friends!
